We are taking bookings for the 2017 Oxbridge Interview Season.

Oxbridge Universities has a rigorous admissions process. We don’t want to pretend we can help you game the system - there aren’t secrets or tricks that students can use to win a place.

Successful students are those who demonstrate a high level of ability, and motivation and potential to learn

However if this is the first interview you’ve ever done, it’s hard to demonstrate this ability fully.  We believe that practice is the only way to overcome this - just like sitting mock exams before the real thing, practice interviews enable you to perform when it counts.

The support we offer is in 3 stages:

  1. Learn about what skills are being looked for at interview
  2. Practice these skills in realistic interviews
  3. Reflect on feedback to develop your skills  

Interview Preparation Session

This 2 hour, 1-1 session helps you to understand why the universities interview applicants; what skills they are looking for and how you can demonstrate these. You will have a chance to practice answering interview questions and develop an action plan to prepare.

Practice Interviews

All practice interviews last 30 minutes, followed by 20-30 minutes of self-reflection and feedback (oral and written) from your interviewer. All our interviews can be filmed on DVD giving you the chance to review your performance.

Personal Statement Interview

Send in a personal statement, and you will be interviewed based on the text. Your interviewer will give you the chance to expand on what you’ve written and related topics. Many students use this an opportunity to help redraft their personal statement.

Subject Interview

Most Oxbridge interviews will focus on your ability to tackle new and challenging topics. You will be given a piece of material (a text, image, dataset etc) or a question to consider for 15 minutes before a half hour interview based on this.

Submitted Work Interview

Some candidates will be asked to submit work to their college, and may be interviewed on this. Our interviewers will read your submitted work and conduct an interview based on this.

Thinking Skills Assessment

The course covers all aspects of TSA Oxford in 14 video lessons, teaching applicants essential strategies to deal with all aspects of test - including verbal and spatial reasoning, calculations, and the essay task (where appropriate). This includes plenty of opportunities for students to practice their skills, including a full length mock, and two half-length mocks. Our experienced trainers also provide invaluable tips and tricks on preparation so students feel as comfortable as possible with the process.

Courses

Our Courses allow applicants to experience multiple practice interviews, and interview styles, with a range of recent Oxbridge graduates. These interviews explore different topics, themes and debates within the subject, allow applicants to discuss familiar and unfamiliar material in an academically rigorous setting and provide an opportunity to reflect on extensive feedback.
